Just cruising – and cruising in some style. Beachfront Boulevard, Brisbane, here we come! The Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio is a distinctively designed open top tourer with an eye catching body that is like no other. Harking back to the 30s and 40s, the chunky aggressive bonnet line swoops up to a raked windscreen that begins a bodyshape that swoops over the curved roofline down and over wide and muscly haunches. A steep drop off at the rear has wonderful retro appeal; so too does the funky flared wheel arches.
If you are looking for a vehicle that is sure to capture heaps of attention, then the Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio is the one for you. Onlookers will be captured by the grunty design, and then they’ll notice your colourful business logo guaranteed. Definitely a promo vehicle, but a lot more practical then you might at first think.
Hop inside the two-door PT Cruiser Cabrio via wide opening front doors, and you’ll find the easy access a pleasant everyday experience. With an upright stance, the Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio offers a higher roof height than many cars do, and inside this translates to a spacious and well lit interior. Seating is also very agreeable. The cleverly designed seats are relatively thin, and thus Chrysler have created good use of cabin space for people with long legs and beefy shoulders. Excellent use has been made around the seats, in the front dash, doors, glove-box and boot for dinky storage compartments. Long journeys or weekend trips become a practical delight for a small family travelling in the all new Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio. Nick-nacks can be carried in the interior to ensure that kids and teens can be kept well occupied with drinks, maps and activity books. The seats in the rear can fold flat to create a magnificent loading space, and when the front passenger seat is also folded flat you can see why this eye catching promo vehicle is not just a good looker.
Funkiness and fun spills over into the really nice dash display, where retro styling again takes centre stage. Clear dials and a logical instrument layout are not without a good dollop of style. Certainly, this is a vehicle that passengers won’t get bored in. Everything about the Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio was meant to be for driving pleasure, comfort and versatility – and the vehicle scores highly in overall appeal and driving satisfaction. Featuring a state-of-the-art stereo, the componentry ensures impeccable sound quality where cruising never sounds better either. The instrument panel has a quality look and boasts a signature Chrysler wing badge clock in the centre. Silver-trimmed twin air vents, the Boston Acoustics sound system and air flow controls, complete the central instrument panel nicely where its beauty is simplistic and very functional. Electric windows, a rear windshield wiper/washer, 65/35 fold-n-tumble rear seats and a rear defrost come as basic standard items on every PT Cruiser model.
Safety is always an important feature that can never be forgotten. The Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio has multistage driver and front-passenger air bags, side air bags and excellent body rigidity. Braking is crisp and strong, and overall body control is very assured.
Under the hood you’ll find a useful source of power to hustle the PT Cruiser Cabrio along nicely when required. The 2.4 litre engine is happy to spin up to its maximum level of power which is a strong 105 kW.
Driving a Chrysler PT Cruiser Cabrio is definitely distinctive, almost as practical as a van and quite fun – especially with the top down.
